Mass vs. Weight: Accelerating Mass

To demonstrate Newton’s Second Law of Motion, astronauts on the International Space Station use force as provided by the spring in a tape measure to act on objects of varying mass. Their demonstration shows that bodies with greater mass are accelerated less by the same force.

This media asset is from the Mass vs. Weight series produced by the Teaching From Space Office at NASA's Johnson Space Center.
